Internship and Visiting Programs

CEMSE Internship and Visiting Program aim to develop undergraduate and graduate student potential through exposure to relevant and applied science and engineering research. We encourage successful internship students to apply to KAUST and other graduate schools, in order to earn graduate degrees and pursue careers in science, technology, and engineering in specialized areas of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Statistics.

Undergraduate and graduate students can come to KAUST in a number of ways. There is an option for a summer experience for local students (SSI) and a 3-6 month research internship for the local and international students (VS). We can host prospective graduate students for a few days or you can join one of our research-themed workshops such as the Microelectronics Winter Camp.

Due to the travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, KAUST is now offering the Remote Internship Program.

These opportunities allow you to work in a group that aligns with your academic interests. You can explore some of our activities and apply, by clicking the links below.
